Graduate From College

I'm not sure what else to say about the graduation itself, so instead I thought I'd reminisce a little about the moments that led up to this one:

All smiles on graduation day

On a given Monday: Notes on the fridge from your roommates reminding you of your resolve to eat more vegetables (never mind that the real motive was to replace the frozen peas/spinach/green beans with liquor)

Eat yo' veggies

On a given Tuesday:  10 pm masses at Joan of Arc.  This picture was taken at a different time, but during Tuesday night masses we packed the chapel.

On a given  Wednesday: A little MU basketball.  I'll never forget the time D Wade came back to retire his jersey :)

Go Marquette!

On a given Thursday:  Hanging out with my roommates.  Inventing things like love cakes (below) & stop movings (naps where you don't sleep you just...stop....moving).

On a given Friday:  Caffs.  Clearly.

Beer and Pizza at Caffs

On a given Saturday:  Hanging out with the people I love!

Western Visits
Roomie love
Apple Holler

On a given Sunday:  I guess we did do a little studying ;)


In a given semester:  Walls of Lame, a room tradition.  We would write the names of our finals on balloons and as we took them, we would pop them.  It may seem ridiculous, but let me tell you that it was the most satisfying way to kiss the semester goodbye.

The culmination of all of these moments lead to the big one--walking down the aisle to receive my diploma.  With that, another check for the ol' bucket list!
